Mindfulness Technique: The Art of Conversation | Mindful

Mindfulness Technique: The Art of Conversation | Mindful | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

Mindfulness technique: Five steps to enjoying more empathetic and artful conversation.

 

Conversation in the original Latin had a very broad meaning. It meant something like “living together, having dealings with others,” and it referred to more than just talking. We can learn a lot from connecting to this original bigger sense of the word.

 

When we're having a real conversation we're actively exchanging—giving and receiving—which begins with truly being together.

 

We can’t exchange something with someone when they, or we, are not present. We can talk to them, we can talk at them, but we can’t have a conversation.

5 Ways Leaders Strengthen And Prepare Their Teams For Change

5 Ways Leaders Strengthen And Prepare Their Teams For Change | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it
Was there ever a time that was more uncertain than today? Are leaders prepared to manage change in ways that strengthen the teams around them?

Leadership is about taking the initiative to do the things others would rather avoid doing – and about allowing risk to be your best friend. Leaders make those around them better by being wise enough to anticipate the unexpected and by being accountable to take action all the way through to the end. They know how to help their teams tackle change hea

It is hard to wear so many hats simultaneously. The wise leader will develop them one at a time and add them to his or her toolbox.  In this way more will be accomplished in a shorter period of time than if we tried to do it all at the same time.  It is better to be excellent at several things acquired over time than to be mediocre at several things tried simultaneously...

Among other things, this is a good argument for optimism as opposed to what is called realism.  It seems to apply both to the personal and society - i.e. If a society feels things are going wrong, as the US currently seems to, then things will go wrong, while when a society believes in itself, as we used to, much more is accomplished and more goes right. -Lon.

In 1964, the prolific social science writerJohn W. Gardner published Self-Renewal: The Individual and the Innovative Society(public library) — a forgotten book of extraordinary prescience and warm wisdom, which rings even timelier today. It’s a must-read as much for entrepreneurs and leaders seeking to infuse their organizations with ongoing vitality as it is for all of us as individuals, on our private trajectories of self-transcendence and personal growth.

Here are some of the benefits of a compassionate workplace:

1. POSITIVE EMOTIONS BOOST PRODUCTIVITY


2. POSITIVE WORKPLACE INTERACTIONS IMPROVE EMPLOYEE HEALTH


3. POSITIVE SOCIAL INTERACTIONS AT WORK RESULT IN POSITIVE CUSTOMER SERVICE


4. A COMPASSIONATE WORK CULTURE FOSTERS GREATER LOYALTY


Seppala argues the creation of a compassionate work environment begins with leaders. When leaders act in a self-sacrificing, service-oriented way, she explains, employees are more likely to be helpful and friendly to each other; creating a chain reaction of kindness.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, December 8, 7:17 AM

The damaging consequence of a focus on traits is that it suggests we need to select the right people to run our lives, rather than consider what forms of hierarchy or non-hierarchy can elicit the best group behaviours to achieve desired goals.


Instead of a focus on heroes with great traits, to develop sustainability leadership we should enhance our understanding of how to develop leaderful groups, where senior role holders act as hosts not heroes, and enable leadership to emerge from within the group.


Miklos Szilagyi's curator insight, December 8, 8:48 AM

The 5 Psychological Traps We All Fall Into

The 5 Psychological Traps We All Fall Into | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it
There are many times when our social perception fails us. We have a tendency to take mental shortcuts, using what psychologists call “heuristics,” when trying to make sense of our social world. As a result, we are prone to make errors in our mental processing.
Here are some examples of common biases in social perception and how they lead us to misjudge people and events

 

The best way to prevent becoming a victim to these common biases in social perception is to be aware of them, and to stop and analyze situations before you act.
